North Carolina’s Attention Turns Toward No. 1 Recruit, Andrew Wiggins

Rob Kinnan-USA Today Sports

With an early exit from this year’s NCAA tournament, the North Carolina Tar Heels now need to turn their attention towards next season.  That of course starts with the decision of Reggie Bullock, James Michael McAdoo, and P.J. Hairston and if they decide to declare for the NBA draft.

Next on the list is Andrew Wiggins.  Wiggins was the No. 1 recruit for the class of 2014 to start the year, but he then reclassified to 2013 and immediately became the top recruit for the upcoming class.

Four schools are on his list, and North Carolina is one of them.  Kansas, Kentucky, and Florida State are the other three.  His father went to Florida State and that might influence his decision a little, but Carolina is praying they can persuade this prized player to be a Tar Heel.

Among people helping out with the recruiting process is Kennedy Meeks.  Meeks is also going to be joining the Tar Heels as a freshman next year, but he is doing everything he can do bring Wiggins along with him.

Wiggins had his official visit at Chapel Hill when the Tar Heels faced Duke on senior night.  It wasn’t the performance they wanted to put on display in front of Wiggins, but it was a great environment and one that would be hard to turn down.

With seven of the top 18 recruits already committing to Kentucky, it would be hard to imagine Wiggins heading down to Lexington next year.

No one has the slightest clue where Wiggins will end up, but his decision is one that is highly anticipated by many people.
